However, the aftermath of the elections has caused a mass breach of this law all over the country as NDC supporters organize massive protests where public peace is being distracted and their safety threatened.

Some instances are the burning of tires in Ashaiman, blocking of roads, closing down and distruction of some private and government properties in other areas all in the name of claiming what is rightfully theirs.
